               D1 Oils to Plant Jatropha with African Governments
         New planting in Zambia and Swaziland to exceed 20,000 hectares

10 November 2005 - London

D1 Oils plc (D1), the UK-based global producer of biodiesel from renewable
energy crops, continues to strengthen its jatropha planting strategy in Africa
by broadening the range of its partners to include national governments. In
southern Africa, D1's regional subsidiary has been chosen by the governments of
Zambia and Swaziland to undertake large scale planting for jatropha biodiesel
production. Planting will encourage rural development and increase fuel


D1 is to undertake the planting of 15,000 hectares of jatropha curcas, its
primary biodiesel feedstock. D1 will carry out planting in cooperation with the
Zambian government and the Kachumu Community Development Network, a government
funded initiative to encourage rural development in Northern Zambia. The Zambian
Government has also appointed D1 as its partner in developing a policy on
biodiesel. A task force has been formed incorporating stakeholders from relevant
government ministries and representatives from D1.

D1 will undertake jatropha planting on a contract farming basis, guaranteeing to
purchase harvested jatropha seeds for processing into crude jatropha oil. D1
intends to establish refinery operations in due course to produce jatropha
biodiesel for use within Zambia and will investigate the potential of
electricity generation from jatropha biomass.

Welcoming the partnership with D1, His Honor, L. Mwape, the Vice President of
the Republic of Zambia, said, 'D1's partnership with the government supported
Kachumu Community Development Network Trust to develop a renewable energy
industry will be one of the defining moments in our Nation's future. It will
create much needed employment and economic upliftment opportunities, whilst
reducing atmospheric pollution and our reliance on imported fuels. It will also
assist in reducing harmful global emissions whereby developed nations can
purchase Zambia's emission reduction credits.'


D1 is to undertake jatropha planting with the support of the Swaziland
Investment Promotion Authority and the Swaziland Water and Agricultural
Development Enterprise. These bodies have facilitated the provision of around
6,000 hectares for the planting of jatropha by rural communities. Three
nurseries have already been established in Swaziland to meet anticipated demand
for the millions of seedlings required for planting.

Philip Wood, CEO of D1, commented, 'We have been working with the governments in
a number of African countries to conduct exploratory studies on how planting
jatropha as an energy crop on unused or marginal land can stimulate rural
economies by providing jobs, diversifying farm incomes and increasing fuel
security. We are now beginning to roll-out projects to produce feedstock,
biomass, biodiesel and by-products for the betterment of the African continent.
The new planting projects in Zambia and Swaziland will contribute towards our
global target of 267,000 hectares by the end of 2006'.
